Athletic: Being an exceptionaly skilled athelete the dragoon gains 10ft to base land speed the
endurace feat and +4 to jump
Custom Spear : The dragoons spear is a speacial weapon. It qualifies as a reach weapon and can
attack ajacent squares. His range for attacks of opportunity remain the same as with a normal weapon.
He may draw his spear or a javalin as a free action. He must make a will check of dc 10 to not
try and retrive his spear once off his person
Spear Mastery: At the 2nd level and every 3 levels there after the dragoon's spear gains +1 as if a
magical weapon and the dragoon may choose from one of the following feats:Weapon Focus: Spear,
Weapon Specialization: Spear, Greater Weapon Focus: Spear, Greater Weapon Specialization: Spear, and
Improved Critical: Spear. Prerequisites still apply. At level 17 and 20 in stead of gaining +1 the
spear becomes a 1d10 and 1d12 respectively.

the results a jump check. He may also use his spear
Quick Toss: At the 6th level the dragoon can throw his spear or a javalin while charging.
Recall Weapon: At the 12th level the dragoon through pure affinity can one time each day, call his
weapon to him from where ever it is. He must concentrate or it will fail. It will fly to him around
corners at 60 feet air speed around corners attempting to break objects in its path. He never fails
to catch it.
Athletic Champion: The dragoon acheives a perfection of physical strength and prowess gaining 10ft to
base land speed and +1 Str, +1 Con, +1 Dex.
Iron grip:The dragoon now treats his spear as a one handed weapon.

Description: A dragoon is an elite military fighter. He is tough, agile, and strong. He makes a good
scout, guard and combatant. The life of a dragoon involves intense physical training. He is
at home in any adrenaline pumping situation, ready for fight or flight. They tend to show off and have
an acute affinity for gymnastics and pure speed. Many hire them selves out as mercenaries when
there are no wars to fight.

"Well as I see it I have three options, I outlast them, out fight them, or if need be out run them."

This class literally has nothing going for it at all.

Mayhaps a complete revision is in order?
